    As Brewers general manager Doug Melvin sees it, his trade talks with the Yankees are “dead.”
    “It’s probably not going to happen,” Melvin said.

    What a change from a week ago at the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas, where Melvin and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman were close to swapping center fielders. The Yankees would have received Gold Glover and run-producer Mike Cameron, and the Brewers would have received a left-handed bat in Melky Cabrera, probably left-hander Kei Igawa and a bit of cost savings to pursue free agent pitching.

    But Melvin and Cashman have not spoken since the morning of Dec. 11. That signaled a dead deal to Melvin.

    And, that brings a smile to this Brett Gardner fan…

      …And an even bigger smile to the 2 or 3 Igawa fans out there 😀

      Hey, if Igawa didn’t suck so much, I think he’d be hugely popular. The sunglasses, the wildness, the loopy quotes, the apparent insanity. I kind of love Igawa as it is. I just wish his ERA weren’t 6.66; though, actually, that’s kind of entertaining too.
